This volume (whose title reflects the central theme of the Second University of Vigo International Symposium on Bilingualism, held in Vigo, Spain, in October 2002) deals with the relations between bilingualism and education through three major approaches, preceded by way of introduction by five texts of well-known authors in this field of study (Part One). The first of these perspectives (Part two: Bilingual socialization in the family) undertakes the processes of constitution of the bilingual child, through the child linguistic socialization within the family. This is an approach that in few occasions has been related with the necessary depth, as we aspire to do in this book, to bilingualism in the formal educative and school domains. The second of these perspectives (Part Three: Plurilingualism in education) takes on the specific problems of bilingualism in the international institutional educative domain, with proposals of innovative models on multilingual/plurilingual education, reconsider-ations on the role of plurilingual education in the maintenance of languages, as well as on the scope that these initiatives can have in their social environment. Finally, the third perspective (Part Four: Bilingualism and education in contemporary Spain) discusses the status of the languages in the educative systems of different Spanish communities.
As a summary, the bilingual socialization processes in the family and at school are an inseparable whole, and this is the general intention that motivates the authors in presenting this volume.
